Offensive POY: Odell Beckham Jr., WR

This guy can stake a claim as the best wide receiver in the NFL, and he’s only played two seasons.

We’re running out of superlatives for Odell Beckham Jr., whose sophomore season was better than his rookie campaign. While he did play in three more games, Beckham had more catches, yards and touchdowns than a year ago, which is impressive considering he wasn’t the unknown commodity that he was in his rookie season.

While many will question his maturity after his meltdown with Josh Norman in the Carolina game, it’s impossible to understate how important Beckham is to this franchise.

Beckham’s rise to superstardom is probably the only reason why Jerry Reese still has a job. At 23 years old, Beckham has his best years ahead of him, and is undoubtably the best player on the Giants, and a top ten player in the NFL at his apex.

The only reason he wasn’t the MVP was, in fact, his meltdown with Norman – Manning’s intangibles, temperament, and leadership made the Ole Miss graduate more valuable than Beckham, but that doesn’t understate how freakishly talented this kid is.
